[Carmelite Priory] "(with notes providing the music's spiritual and ecclesiastical background) there is one collection that stands out from all others ... this beautifully sung and excellently recorded anthology is the finest introduction to plainsong. ... extra variety of tone is provided by female voices as well as male ... McCarthy directs the singing with dedication and authority" (Penguin Guide ROSETTE ! recording) [Clervaux] "This should gladden the heart of anyone who has paid a visit to Clervaux and heard those popular summer chants, sung festively with distant bells. Anyone who hankers after the straightforward sound of a working monastic choir, well groomed in the style of 'Old Solesmes', should enjoy this record." (Gramophone)
